Fantastic collection of contemporary art with some wonderful pieces by many of my favorite artists! In an old wool factory, there are the large exhibition spaces, but also a row of smaller "cell" like rooms each focussing on works by one or two artists. Really well designed and laid out museum. Nice balance of Dutch artists, with more internationally known artists-Kapoor, Boltanski, Troeckel, Turrell and on and on. The second time I was there, there was an exhibit of student/master collaborative work which was much weaker, but that happens. Just check the rotating exhibits ahead of time if you only want to see specific things.
My only peeve is the museum shop would not accept swipe (aka US) credit cards. While this is fairly typical in Netherlands, this was the only museum that I found would not even try it. Most other place resist but will try, and then the card will work. They had no interest in trying, which was too bad, as I was ready to drop a bundle on some good catalogs.
